Tony, good looking truck and a nice refresh for the typical Brit truck. Now the real wait begins.

Would you mind sharing your shop costs for the repairs/bulkhead?

If you are taller, switching to lowback Series seats will allow the rear seatback to recline under the tub lip, helps for driving position. Or just remove the headrests, as theyare the first bit that makes contact with cab roof.

Congrats on a nice build. I for one expect a nice driving video once it has left port!

I’ll have to go through the final tally, but the biggest expense was the new bulkhead. I sourced it from Ashtree which took a very long time but was worth it. The other cost drivers were the wheels and tires and new rear canvas. The key to all of this was having a good working relationship with a shop you trust. I was able to visit the truck and the shop last year which helped, as did buying it from a trusted source.

Don’t worry, I have an app updating me! Like I said, dream vacation is transiting the Atlantic on a container ship. I can’t seem to get the family to bite on that idea . . .

After 3.5 weeks in customs purgatory it sounds like she might have gotten cleared! The bad news: I’m in Ireland for 2 weeks and need to sort out how to get her home from a few thousand miles away. #firstworldproblems #stillapainintheass

Unless someone can drive it for you, just get her towed by a flat-deck AAA truck. Probably cheaper than paying storage. You will most likely need a written authorization to allow the vehicle to be picked up by anyone other than you, but that, in theory, can be done remotely. I had my vehicle picked up fro US CBP bonded storage that way without any issues.

And just like that, she’s home! Massive thanks to Uncle Doug and Cousin Trey for all the help getting her across the pond and home from the docks today.
